Tweed and Twill Pillowcover Weave-Along Bundle ~ Large Turquoise
$ 87.50 USD
We're thrilled to partner with Liz Gipson of Yarnworker for her Winter Weave-Along - read all about why we love Weave-Alongs, and what's so special about this yarn here.
This oversized pillow was designed for serious lounging. The fabric is a 1/3 twill woven with two 5-dent heddles in a hardy wool grown in the USA and spun and dyed by Mountain Meadow Wool Mill. Liz will offer some options for weaving it with a single heddle, which is best used to weave a narrower version of the project. Find all details for the Yarnworker Weavealong here.
The large pillow as written is 21.5 x 21.5 inch pillow with an 8” flap, - for this option you should buy the Large bundle. For those who only have 15-inch looms, you can weave a small 12 x 12 inch version using the Small bundle.
The pattern is not included in this bundle. The educational part of the Yarnworker Weavealong is free, but you'll need to buy a copy of Handwoven Home for the full pattern - Liz's publisher would frown upon her sharing the pattern with everyone. If you're a rigid heddle weaver and don't already have this book by Liz Gipson - believe us, you want it!
I had plenty of yarn to weave the tweed and twill pillow cover for a 20”x20” pillow plus enough fabric to make a pouch.
Beautiful color, very bouncy yarn. Buy extra 8-10%for takeup.
It is nicely spun, it has a little stretch and bounce to it. I'm enjoying weaving my project with it. I'm almost done with the weaving part. It has been a fun weave-along.
